Testing compliance check completed

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation on a compulsory testing notice for CentrePoint in Sheung Wan.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 7am to 10.30am by the Central & Western District Office together with Police, the Department of Health and the Auxiliary Medical Service.   About 90 people’s test records were checked during the operation. Among them, 20 people were found to have violated the compulsory testing notice.   Noting that the enforcement process may cause inconvenience to residents, the Government appealed for their understanding as the operation was conducted to stop the spread of COVID-19. http://dlvr.it/S4kC72

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise for the restricted area in Central & Western District finished today with two preliminary positive COVID-19 cases found.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on March 14 to make a restriction-testing declaration, requiring people within the specified restricted area to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   The restricted area covered Towers 1 to 5, Dynasty Court, Blocks A and B, Kingsfield Tower, Fung Lam Building, Tung Ming Court, Lee Wai Building and 63 Pok Fu Lam Road.   The Government also issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been at the building for more than two hours from March 1 to 14 to undergo compulsory testing on or before March 16 even if they were not in the building when the declaration took effect.   About 1,640 residents were tested.   Meanwhile, the Government assigned staff to visit about 1,000 households and around 250 did not answer the door. These include some households with confirmed cases or are undergoing quarantine and some units that are possibly vacant. Follow-up measures will be taken.   Twenty three people were found to have not undergone compulsory testing during the enforcement operation.
